You are able to say to yourself, 'I have lived through this horror. I can take the next thing that comes along.' You must do the thing you think you cannot do." -Eleanor Roosevelt
Eleanor Roosevelt is one of my favorite first ladies! She was always a champion of facing our fears. Personally I’m much better at this in theory than practice.
The Gospel Doctrine lesson I’m teaching today has a scripture from 2nd Timothy 1:7 that says: “For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.”
We might not get to all the lesson material in class but I like this concept that striving to live with the spirit is the best antidote to fear. I guess I should practice it more and preach it less!
